NBC's Opening Night Coverage Is More Limp Than Olympic (washingtonpost.com)"World-class mistakes and monumental errors of judgments were, perhaps appropriately, part of NBC's coverage last night of the opening ceremonies for the XIX Winter Olympic Games from Salt Lake City." Shales is dead on. Last night NBC's coverage was, as always, amateur and annoying. I know some don't agree with me, but I still don't know what anyone sees in Bob Costas. I have not enjoyed anything he has ever done in terms of sports. He is distracting, pedantic, and plain useless. Sue me. I hate NBC sports.(9:55 PM) ¶

Are Political Parties Inherently Undemocratic?. "In George Washington's Final Farewell Address he warned against the dangers of adopting a system based on political parties. However, despite the urgings of the first President, the government of the United States is dominated by two major parties. Is this a twisting of democracy or an inevitable practicality?"

Yasir Arafat's Op-ed Piece. "Yasir Arafat has written an impassioned op-ed piece for the New York Times (free registration required) outlining his vision for the future of the Palestinians. It is well-written and does not waste words. Arafat states his desire to return to peace talks and expresses regret at the activities of the Palestinian fringe which has resorted to suicide bombings. He asks for Palestinians displaced from their homes 54 years ago to be allowed to return, while acknowledging Israel's demographic concerns. He asks for an end to occupation and subjugation of the Palestinian people." [kuro5hin.org](12:24 PM) ¶
